ROUND CORRAL CLINICS
featuring DAN STEERS
of Double Dan Horsemanship
Presented by our friends at
Dan grew up in Western Australia and was first introduced to horses in his early teens. At the age of 15 he began working for master farrier and accomplished horsemen, Pete Webber. Here Dan began to develop his skills as both a horseman and farrier. At 17, Dan began working for cutting trainer Corry Holden in Cobram, Victoria Australia. He spent 6 months starting and training young horses. During this time Dan was recognized as a rising in the show ring due to his winning many senior junior level cutting events. In 2007 Dan won the ACA Western Australian Reserve Champion Open Campdraft Rider. Dan continues to be actively involved in Campdraft judging where he is able to invest back into the sport he loves.
In early 2002, Dan returned to West Australia and began working at Taunton Vale, a large Thoroughbred and Australian Stock Horse farm. While at Taunton Vale, Dan was involved in all aspects of breeding, training, showing and yearling preparation. After leaving Taunton Vale Dan persisted in his quest to improve his skills and remain a well rounded horseman, by continuing to shoe all breeds and disciplines of horses and working closely with local veterinarians, all while managing a 10,000 acre cattle property. By this time, word of Dan’s abilities and talents had spread throughout the local horse community. At the request of local horsemen, Dan began conducting regular horsemanship clinics in addition to his other responsibilities.
In 2008 Dan joined his good friend Dan James at El Caballo Spanish Horse Centre, Wooroloo West Australia. Here, they hosted “The Dan & Dan Show” each weekend. Through performing Dan continued to refine his showmanship and training skills. Dan & Dan relocated their training business to North Arm Cove, New South Whales Australia in 2009 and “Double Dan Horsemanship” was born.
